Fucked Up called in some reinforcements for the second single from their upcoming LP, Glass Boys. Check out "Led By Hand" above, featuring Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis.
The song kicks off with a tone influenced by fellow Canadian punk band Propagandhi. The tune could stand alone as a punk rock track, but the ever experimental band add harmonic counterpoints to their harsh sound. As Damian Abraham's fierce vocals descend into rasping mayhem during the chorus, he's joined by Mascis' calm baritone, adding an almost-country element to the mix. The lush guitars and diverse timbres stick around to the end, with the chaos and the order bouncing beautifully off each other.
Check out the first single from Glass Boys, "Paper The House," right here at Zumic. The record will be out June 3rd, and you can pre-order it through Amazon. For more music, videos, and news, check out their Zumic artist page.
